Amish Chicken Casserole
Amish Chicken Casserole is a classic comforting chicken noodle casserole with a cheesy and brothy sauce topped with a crispy breadcrumb layer. This recipe is so easy to prepare and only consists of 6 easy to find ingredients like shredded chicken, noodles, cream of mushroom soup, cheese, bread crumbs, and butter. Season according to taste preferences and enjoy!
3 c. cooked chicken (cut up or shredded)
10 oz. noodles
1 can (10.5 oz) cream of mushroom soup
1 c. diced cheddar cheese or Velveeta
2 c. bread crumbs
1/4 c. butter (melted)
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350°. Cook noodles in chicken broth, drain, and reserve 1 cup of residual chicken broth.
Mix chicken with cream of mushroom soup, noodles, and cheese. If preferred, add reserved broth from noodles for a more liquidy mixture. Season with salt and pepper according to taste.
Combine bread crumbs and melted butter.
Transfer the chicken mixture to greased 9x13 casserole pan. Top with an even layer of the breadcrumb mixture.
Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until browned and bubbling.
We find using rotisserie chicken is the quickest and easiest way to make this recipe but you can also use leftover, boiled, baked, or canned chicken.
For more of a brothy flavor and liquid consistency, reserve 1 cup of broth from the noodles and combine with cream of mushroom sauce.
Feel free to add some fresh or frozen veggies like peas, corn, or broccoli.
Use any kind of noodle such as rigatoni, penne, farfalle, or egg noodles.
Replace bread crumbs with Ritz crackers crumbs if desired.
How to store Amish Chicken Casserole?
Amish Chicken Casserole can be refrigerated for up to 3-5 days but is best served immediately. If you want to make it a day or night before serving, leave out the bread crumbs until ready to bake.
